A little hamlet of stylish self-catering holiday cottages in Brittany
Holiday Cottages in the Côtes d'Armor in Brittany, available for a long or a short stay with or without breakfast. Ideal for a romantic break in the countryside and also for a family holiday as children are very welcome.
The atmosphere in the houses is easy-going, friendly and very calming with natural materials, pastel colours, comfortable beds and furniture. There is a lovely mixture of old and new. There are wood burning stoves in 5 of the houses which contributes to the comfort on autumn evenings : there's nothing like a log fire and a glass of wine.
Nestled in the rolling hills of historic Brittany, yet just a few minutes’ drive from the breath-takingly rugged coastline, time spent here will certainly blow away the cobwebs and revive your soul!

Each of the eight unique holiday cottages and converted barns has been thoughtfully and responsibly restored and renovated by husband-and-wife team Corentin and Liz Lamour since they inherited the farm from Corentin’s grandparent.
The Lamours are passionate about sustainability and have used natural materials to transform the old stone buildings into warm and inviting self-catering accommodation. Thanks to Liz’s love of interior design and her collection of vintage treasures each rental cottage has its own distinct style, while Corentin’s quirky reimagining of salvaged bits and pieces found dotted around the farm has added an unusual twist. As a nod to their history, these highly individual child-friendly buildings have all been named after their original occupants, further adding to their distinct personalities.
Liz and Corentin, who love this family-friendly community, live here themselves, in the farm’s former piggery. Their four nature-loving children love water sports like surfing & stand up paddle at the nearby beaches as much as they enjoy playing outdoors in the fields – when they’re not lending their parents a hand around the farm and cottages, that is! While Corentin keeps busy with building maintenance and tending the farm’s friendly herd of cows, Liz loves taking care of the holiday guests – she can deliver a delicious breakfast basket on request, including freshly baked local bread and pastries and homemade juice and jam made with fruit from the orchard. Liz can also recommend restaurants by the sea, wher to buy seafood – and help with bookings, too, if your French is a little rusty!
If you fancy a spot of cooking in your cottage’s well-equipped kitchen, on the other hand, she will direct you to the many food markets – and you are welcome to help yourselves to the farm’s vegetable garden and glasshouse, where you’ll also find herbs, salad and even edible flowers in the kitchen garden. Liz can also point you in the direction of her favourite antiques markets, if you’ve been inspired by her love of vintage interiors, so you can take home a reminder of your incredible stay.
Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway surrounded by nature, or a place where the children can enjoy a little freedom and plenty of fresh air, this picturesque hamlet is the perfect destination to slow down and relax for a week ... or more.
Dinard, Ile de Bréhat, Paimpol, the pink Granit coast and even the Mont Saint Michel are nearby.
